    Default OB gift

    Just wondering if you decided to buy your OB a thank you gift what was it?
    I know not everyone does, and a lot think the payment is enough, but would love suggestions from those that have given a gift.

    Subbing here!

    Our ob has also been our fertility specialist for the past 7 years and we are soon to have our third and final little miracle. We want to get ob something to show our appreciation. We know what he drinks which is expensive scotch so we are thinking perhaps a bottle of that and a huge gift basket.

    I sent a chocolate strawberry tree - there is a few company's in Sydney that do them - it's a "tree " made of chocolate covered strawberries in white/milk and dark chocolate - I wanted something his mid wife and receptionist could also share as they were also wonderful and they all loved it

    I just sent my Ob and midwife a really nice thank you card. My midwife worked a double shift to be with me and my Ob was just amazing.

    I will give a gift to OB this time, subbing for ideas!

    When we took DD home I bought two large gift boxes and filled them with all different chocolates and treats, put one in the nurses tea room and one in the NICU office / doctors rooms. If you see a nice midwife at your OBs office and the receptionists etc are lovely, that might be a nice whole practice gift rather than just something for OB alone?

    My obst gets a basket full of his favourite wine... Wasn't hard to work out what he likes as the boutique winery is just down the road from his suites. A bit awkward when I drop it in, clinking all the way up to the receptionists counter...

    The receptionists can also give you a good heads up of what your obst might like or what to avoid lol!

    Don't forget a photo for their wall of fame (if they have one).

    I just sent a birth announcement card which had a photo of my nb and personalised a message for my ob and the mw on duty who helped me through labour.
